Random Cool Video: Star Wars Prequels in 6 Minutes to the Tune of Bohemian Rhapsody

Offbeat

For many, the Star Wars prequels are something to be treated like a knight you over-indulged and wish could just be forgotten. For others they are the realization of the awesomeness of Jedi powers and lightsaber battles. But for everyone with a sense of humor and some attachment to the franchise, this video is loads of fun. It walks you through the entire prequel trilogy in just over 6 minutes, showing the highlights in a light narration.

Personally, while I have been told that as someone who used my own money to see ‘Star Wars’ a dozen times in theaters back in 1977 I should be affronted by the prequels. Yet I am not. I find The Phantom Menace slow at times, some of the acting in Attack of the Clones wooden, and some of the writing in Revenge of the Sith unfortunate. Yet I watched them all again – along with the originals – on cable over the long weekend, and was reminded of my reply to others: the original movies weren’t all that great to begin with! They are a load of fun, but are largely B-movie popcorn flicks.

What do you think? Do you like the video? What are your thoughts on the prequels?

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
